C.M.P. Featured Writers, Sept 2021

September, the month of my birth. In a strange way, I simultaneously feel a revival of energy and my aging bones getting more painful around this time of year. Happy to be alive, but sad in a way as well because I’m one year closer to the inevitable. The weather is also cooler and we’re one month closer to Halloween, but that also means some of us will be battling snow soon. I love snow, it’s not something I experienced a lot growing up down south, but not too much snow. Over the years I’ve become kind of “eh” about it. Gotta take the bad with the good I guess. This is still my favorite time of the year.

Below are this month’s featured writers. If you’d like to submit some writing, send 1-3 poems to cajunmuttpress@gmail.com along with a bio and author photo. Currently filling spots for December.

Manuscript submissions are still CLOSED, but keep your eyes peeled for our next book release by Will Mayo that will be announced later this month. I also have a book lined up for Ron Whitehead in October and one for Tim Heerdink in December so I have some killer reading material in store for y’all!

PS. I decided not to do the Halloween Zine, only got a handful of submissions; probably should’ve announced the idea sooner.

Cajun Mutt Press Featured Writers, August 2019

sun moon CMP

August is upon us and the poetic stars are aligned with the Fire and Earth of Leo and Virgo, may the words of poetic hearts, minds, and souls set the world ablaze!

I have another tremendous line up in store for your reading pleasure this month, and I will be interviewing a few Cajun Mutt Press authors as well. Also, keep your eyes peeled for updates on upcoming book publications and a couple of other projects that I’ve been working on.

Below you’ll find the list of Featured Writers, and as usual, all submissions can be sent to cajunmuttpress[at]gmail[dot]com. Send 1-3 poems with a bio and author photo for featured writer spots, and manuscripts with a minimum of 100 pages.

Keep the words flowing! Remember, not only am I a publisher/editor but a poet/writer as well. We are the lifeblood of the literary scene. Small press venues and lit. mags would be nothing without us, I know this first hand. Infinite thanks for lending me little pieces of yourselves to keep the heart of Cajun Mutt Press beating strong.

With Love & Sincerity,
Write On!
